Wishing everyone a Happy New Year! Been buying a little bit here and there of some kid-friendly party food. We celebrated early this evening as the kids are both a little under the weather. We blew on party horns, shared resolutions and toasted each other. The children put coins out on window sills, on the stairs and by all the doors. This is a Filipino tradition to invite wealth into the new year. (Told with the caveat about superstitions, of course.)
We also had noodles for long life (an Asian tradition) and black-eyed peas for early supper. And whoopee pies for dessert, because, well, they just seemed appropriate!
